A guy like Jason Ritter likely has a nice pick of leading role opportunities, but when the right material and collaborators come along, he’s got no problem taking on a supporting part like Wally in Free Samples.
The film stars Jess Weixler as a law school dropout who bartends sporadically and indulges in booze herself far more regularly. After a hard night of drinking, she’s suckered into working on her friend’s ice cream truck for the day, a day that consists of no coffee, bad ice cream and a ton of customers that don’t go well with a hangover. However, a visit from her good friend Wally makes for a nice visit thanks to a certain lifelong dream of his.
While celebrating Free Samples’ world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, Ritter took the time to sit down and talk about working with Weixler and director Jay Gammill, dropping his pants on set, a certain little couch accident and much more. Watch it all in the video interview below.
